Early detection of changing ecosystems is aim of Nebraska-led research

October 2, 2019

Lincoln, Neb. — In medicine, the ability to screen for diseases before they wreak havoc on the human body has been revolutionary. Tests like colonoscopies and mammograms detect health problems before a patient has symptoms – and while there is still time to reverse course.

Nebraska biochemist explores role of proteins in health

September 3, 2019

Lincoln, Neb. — An estimated 42 million protein molecules per cell carry out many of the human body’s most critical functions: transporting oxygen, delivering intercellular messages and driving immune responses, for example. Each protein molecule contains one or more intricately folded chains of amino acids, which form a 3D shape that evolves to respond to the environment and meet the cell’s demands.

Lincoln, Neb. — Wearable technology will soon move from wrist to stalk, swapping measures of blood flow and respiration for sap flow and transpiration.

Their design won’t have anyone confusing growing season with fashion season, but the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s James Schnable and Iowa State University colleagues are developing a Fitbit-like sensor to be worn by corn and other thick-stemmed crops.
